Thursday 21 March 2019

On Monday 18th March the RSSBC girls’ squads travelled to Dorney Lake, Eton to compete at the Junior Sculling Head.

WJ18 Quad

The race consisted of two 1800m time-trials on a windy Olympic lake, with hundreds of junior rowers in attendance.

The WJ18 quad lead the way for RSSBC with a fantastic first run, but the conditions got the better of the girls in the second leg, with the crew finishing 10th out of 36.

The WJ17 quad also had a tough time across the rough water but placed a very respectable 14th in their event.

The WJ15 A quad had an excellent afternoon placing 13th out of 70 crews and were thrilled to beat a few top rivals. The WJ15 B quad placed 41st in the challenging conditions.

For the newest members of the Boat Club who started in September, the Scullery was their first competition. The WJ15 octuple raced valiantly and finished 17th out of 21 crews.

The RSSBC girls had a great day of racing with all crews looking to use the experience to build on their performances for the summer regattas.
